      This looks like a great car. I would buy one. Too bad we will not get it over here. But hey, we all want to drive the VW/ [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthdown.gif[/IMG] Chrysler mini van, right? What sort of butt heads are running VW?

      the pics of the white one posted by jaegervw2 are soo much better, that cars is sick because its actually a fast back like the scirocco, not a ghey hatch back.

    7. 05-21-2009 05:09 PM #107
      I hope they have a better re sale value than the old ones. Mine 88 scirocco is in good shape and I can't even get rid of it for $500.

      well if they bring over a limited number and they sell well (like the 04 R32) then they will hold their value

      at this rate I may be driving my '04 R32 for the rest of my life, sorry VW, but you haven't given me an excuse to trade up yet.... [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emgift.gif[/IMG]

      Please attach the picture of the civic your talking abut. I never saw an agressive style 2 door hatch by honda that is out now. I must be missing something. POST THOSE PICS UP ASAP because I might go trade in my GTI

      Here is the current style.....


      Notice...Im just posting the pic he asked for...Im not saying the rocco looks like an civc or anything.(Thats what the mk5 golf was for)

      Ummmmm.... a car carrier in Europe.
      And as stated earlier.... This Scirocco or the Focus RS would be pushing $40-50k

      Lurching towards the Scirocco, 85GTI makes low grunting sounds of approval while dragging his ape like arms along the floor

      Can't they just offer RWD or even AWD for once??? I no the car would be fun to drive even in FWD but come on, just one car.

    16. 05-22-2009 02:09 AM #116
      This car definitely makes me want to reconsider getting a GTi.

    17. 05-22-2009 05:26 AM #117
      Can anyone repaint it in black?

    18. 05-22-2009 07:00 AM #118
      VWoA back in 2002 this forum pushed hard for the Euro 25th GTI and you gave us the 337, 1500 copies that had a internet presale and nearly half of the sold online the rest sold at sticker the second they hit the dealers books. The car went over so well that the next year you gave us the 20th which also sold well and has one of the best resale values of any VW. So why can't we go that route again, make it a very limited edition high priced decked out version of the car. Put it in all the US auto shows, and generate some excitement for the VW brand. Everyone will want to come see it, the die hards will buy it, and everyone else will be in your showrooms so you can show them how great and inexpensive most of the rest of your line up is. Generate some buzz, please your fans, sell some other models.

      The process of bringing us the 337 required no federalization costs; chassis/engine/trans combo already existed here.
      The Scirocco is an entirely new chassis and requires extensive testing before making it to US showrooms. So just getting the car to market already puts it in a big hole, financially speaking, and low sales volume predictions make it a losing proposition as far as VW is concerned.
      Finally, it's VW's position that a relatively large percentage of US Scirocco sales would equate to a relatively large percentage of fewer GTI sales.

      This car should of been put out instead of the GTI by far the hottest new addition to the VW lineup.. Now please bring it to the states so i can sell all my cars and just have one sweet Scirocco!!! I also back the statement that they should at least put out a RWD model i mean seriously just 1 that isn't air cooled pleaseee

      Let's not get our hopes up as the US will probaby NEVER see this car

      Very true.

      Regardless,... this car should have been a fastback - like the original Scirocco and Corrado. As a hatchback, it just looks like a shorter Golf.
